How to make the bed like a professional? Making a bed like a professional involves attention to detail and a systematic approach.
Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Strip the Bed:
Remove all bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, blankets, and duvet covers.
Mattress Pad and Protector:
If you have a mattress pad or protector, ensure it’s clean and fitted securely onto the mattress.
Bottom Sheet (Fitted Sheet):
Start by placing the fitted sheet over the mattress. Make sure it’s evenly spread and tucked tightly under the mattress corners.
Top Sheet (Flat Sheet):
Lay the flat sheet evenly over the fitted sheet, ensuring it hangs evenly on both sides of the bed and is straight at the head.
- Hospital Corners (Optional): For a crisp, professional look, you can fold and tuck the corners of the flat sheet under the mattress. To do this, lift the mattress slightly at each corner and fold the excess sheet diagonally underneath, then tuck it in tightly.
- Blanket or Bedspread: If using a blanket or bedspread, lay it evenly over the flat sheet. Smooth out any wrinkles and ensure it hangs evenly on both sides.
- Fold Down Top Sheet and Blanket: At the head of the bed, fold down the top portion of the flat sheet and blanket or bedspread to create a neat, layered look. The fold should be wide enough to expose any decorative elements on the top sheet or blanket.
- Pillows: Arrange pillows neatly at the head of the bed. Start with the larger pillows against the headboard or wall, followed by any smaller decorative pillows in front. Fluff pillows to ensure they look plump and inviting.
- Pillowcases: Place pillowcases on each pillow, ensuring they’re smooth and evenly aligned.
- Duvet or Comforter: If using a duvet or comforter, lay it evenly over the bed, ensuring it covers the top sheet and any blankets. Fluff and adjust as needed for a uniform appearance.
- Final Touches: Stand back and assess the bed for any wrinkles or unevenness. Smooth out any wrinkles and adjust the bedding as necessary to achieve a clean, polished look.
